around for some beauty products. then decided to leave. bill: we are waiting for u.n. ambassador susan rice. she is back on capitol hill. yesterday she met with three top republicans who all said they were more disturbed about the situation after the meeting than they were when the meeting started. have a listen. >> i'm more convinced than ever, it was bad, it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama 3 weeks before an election. bill: that was behind sa -- that was lindsey graham. you are on the record saying you will not support her if she is nominated for secretary of state. but not just because of libya. what is the problem. >> let me clarify that. my first thought is what if susan rice was thrown under the bus and they all knew she didn't have the information from the cia. then i thought you would have to feel sorry for her. since yesterday talking to some of those to whom she talked i'm convinced in my mind that she is part of the coverup, she knew all the time the cia information that was given to her. but your point is very good. i

as china is playing a role in the un in regards to syria. >> when i think about north korea i think about a particularly in the context of nuclear proliferation. and if you look at one of the greatest threats the nation faces, the president faces it's that threat. how are we going to enjoy -- ensure we're doing everything to protect ourselves against nuclear weapons? >> take the north korean situation. chinese would persuade north koreans not to go you'll out and build a large arsenal. we have to tell them if north korea continues to build or test nuclear weapons, we will take off from south korea the pro hibation we have of south korea buildings and in which case i don't think chinese would like it much. i think unless you're willing to make statements to these folks you don't get much cooperation. china looks upon north korea rightly. they would be unhappy if the north korea regime were overthrown they see capitolist democracy, marching right up to their border right on the border. >> what about north korea? how do you describe what the president has done? >> the obama administration is
may be able to help. >> it has been almost a year since kim jong-un the third son of kim jong-il took power in north korea after his father's death. >> the other sons were perceived to be losers and this was the one who had the potential to be a leader. >> there are some who look at this as an opportunity perhaps he wouldn't be as ruthless. >> he made some statements that indicate he is a little hipper than his father was. he allowed his wife to be shown on tv. he appeared with life size character churs -- caricatures of mickey house. >> he amowed them women to dress in a more western fashion. >> there is little difference between him and his father and grandfather. one of the first things he did upon succeeding his father was to issue a shoot to kill order to north korean order guards. he said shoot anybody in the back who is trying to escape. >> they risk everything. they know when they leave north korea they are risking death. >> in 2001 mike kim left everything left behind in chicago and moved to northern china to help north korean detectors. >> lived in the china border hiding ou
right now. meanwhile after petraeus' testimony before congress, a big battle is brewing over u.n. ambassador susan rice's declassified talking points on the attack in benghazi. specifically why the role of terrorism wasn't reflected in them. democratic senator dianne feinstein, the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee, says she'll investigate why the terrorist role wasn't included. still in an appearance on nbc's meet the press, feinstein said she was sure the white house didn't change the language in those talking points. >> with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there's only one thing that was changed. and i checked into this. i believe it to be absolute fact. and that was the word counsel was changed to mission. that's the only change that anyone in the white house made. and i have checked this out. >> republicans are accusing the obama administration of a cover-up and want ambassador rice to testify before congress. >> it's going to be one tough confirmation hearing. all right coming up, president obama on his way to c
centered on the u.n. ambassador susan rice. but her public role in controversial statements in the wake of the failed benghazi attack that left four americans dead could make potential confirmation process through the senate a rocky one. it's no secret senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in the job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. with democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to enter the possibility of losing a senate seat if he wants john kerry badly enough. >> treasury secretary tim geithner has also expressed his desire to return to private life. but with key tax cuts set to expire and sequestration looming his departure is likely to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner have put a lot of energy in to the issues, related to the fiscal cliff. they are going to want to see it through. >> the same is likely through of defense secretary leon panetta who pleaded with congr
for u.n. ambassador then was a recess appointee. no way the president will nominate a secretary of state as a recess appointee. you cannot with credible lead diplomacy over the world. we'll have a debate tomorrow. there is a debate in the general assembly of the united nations on palestinian statehood. it is symbolic but now france is going along with the rest of the general assembly, the united states and israel and a few others will probably stand alone against this gesture considered a very important move by the sort of weakened fatah branch of the palestinians after what happened with gaza and hamas and susan rice has to represent the united states. and there's got to be a lot of weakening of her position. >> wow, a lot going on. obviously the fiscal cliff as well. the president is sitting down with a dozen chief executeties today to talk about this. some of them were prominent supporters of mitt romney. and then the president is going to try and sell his budget plan going to a toy factory. speaking of -- >> that's where i'd go. >> speaking of the budget, coming up, former treasurer
think it is important. that susan wright, the un embassy came out on the five talk shows that said it was because of the video that the libya attack happened. look at what 60 minutes released on line. there are long passages and questions about whether or not it was a terrorism attack look at this and then you judge why they left it out sunday night after susan wright said it was the video. >> steve: steve croft asked the president. you went out of the way to avoid the word terrorism in connection with the statue of liberty attack. >> brian: mitt romney said the same thing >> chris: can they said his was political. the president responded it was too early to tell how it came about. it was an attack on americans. the president is rehuctant to call it terrorism. he said what group was involved. if there was a group involved with rpg's and knew within two hours afterwards that an affiliate of al-qaida claimed responsibility on social media and for the president to say we don't know which group? it is terrorist. >> gretchen: it is it why that was important story not included in the ori
. we saw famously benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel before the u.n. with that diagram talking about the redline. what was peres's definition of that red line? is it the same as the united states? >> it's really interesting because all the talk about iran and it being the most dangerous threat to the world has -- we've heard very, very little about iran from the leaders here in israel, but we did ask president peres what he thought about if israel decided to strike iran because here in this country there has been a lot of argument and some investigative stories that have come out that show that mr. netanyahu was at odds with his military commanders as to whether or not they could have a strike on raurn done only by israel without the help of the united states and have that be a successful one. here is what the president had to say about it. >> i think that, first of all, we have we have all we have to do without any strike at home, and we have to add the time and collect the measures to bring an end to the iranian danger by economic and political pressure. this is the p
the plo, of course the plo is about to declare a state at the u.n. later this month they are asking for an upgrade of their mission there, and so hamas may be trying to steal the thunder of their rival the plo. but, you know, one knows for sure that they cannot destroy israel, they can't defeat israel here. what they are inviting is potentially a ground operation which would devastate the gaza strip. jenna: so much we want to talk about, jonathan, we never have enough time. we look forward to having you back as always. thank you so much. >> my pleasure. jon: right now both republicans and democrats saying they are on the same page, that they can reach a deal to avoid sending the country over the so-called fiscal cliff. but it appears the stickyist of sticking points, raising taxes on the wealthy is still standing in the way of any compromise. >> we are still at the place where everything gets hung up, no increases in tax rates, that is still the position of house republicans, correct? >> well, again, we'd be happy to look at that if it solved the problem. the problem is it doesn't s
's improving off the bottom. it's a huge increase. i don't think this is enough to get an un-- it's politically speaking, it's that friday number that people will be focusing on of the what is the unemployment rate. >> steve: the monthly? >> yeah. i think that may tick up. particularly if more people are looking for work, it could have an impact on this race by picking up even though things are getting marginally better. >> gretchen: does this thursday number, which we always report weekly, the first-time unemployment claims, people walk into the office for the first time, does that number correlate? >> sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. none of these numbers correlate very well. >> gretchen: so because this went down and lower than expected doesn't mean unemployment will go down tomorrow? >> no. on friday, if the number goes up, for example, goes up to 8, let's say, 8%, that doesn't mean that things are necessarily bad 'cause more people are looking for work. they feel more confident. so all these numbers have to be looked at in context and -- remember, these are statistical estimate
morning, carol. >> up to nine hours to vote. that's just crazy. some might say that's un-american. what do you say to that, lz? >> i say it's going along as planned. this is not news to the officials who implemented these laws, limited the amount of hours which early voting can happen and saw this tidal wave coming with the hopes of what it would do to deter democrats voting for president obama. this was all part of the very diabolical plan. i'm disturbed and every american should be disturbed by this. >> florida's republican governor did fight to limit early voting and he won. he decreased the number of days. in retrospect, was that wise? >> look, here's the deal. it is unfortunate what's happened in these three or four florida counties, carol. but let me give you a couple of statistics to balance out lz's claims of diabolical. in 2000, 15% of the vote was early voting. in 2008, that was up to 30%. and this year, many are expecting the early voting will make up 40% of the voting electorate. the point is, it is getting easier to vote earlier and that's a good thing. but because we had prob
whether or not we saw netanyahu at that big red magic marker in front of the u.n. general assembly. we'll see what obama's next move is in that standoff. christiane amanpour, always a pleasure. thank you. >> thank you. >>> and we have the same president, the same parties in charge of both the house and the senate. now that the campaign is over, are there any hopes here that our political leaders will reach out across party lines to solve some of the big problems we face? that debate is next. ace is? maybe somewhere around my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly where it is using bing elections. it's a good day for politics. which way do you lean politically? conservative. republican. well, using the bing news selector you can find news from whichever way you lean. (together) social on this side, financial. which party is currently predicted to win a majority in the senate? the republicans? would you make a bet on that? no. are you chicken? a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, a
minister there, famously at the u.n. nick, what do you think is the biggest challenge that the president has to deal with for iran? >> well, you know, suzanne, i think the president has a lot of support here in the united states, and he certainly does around the world for his basic policy, which is we should try negotiations with the iranians before we think about the use of force, and i would expect, suzanne, over the next several months that you'll see the united states try to reinvigorate the negotiating process, whether that's the multi-lateral process with russia, china, britain, fans, and germany involved, but also possibly see if there should be direct talks between the united states and iran. we haven't had those kind of talks really in three decades since the iranian revolution started, and i suspect, suzanne, he will have bipartisan support for that in washington d.c. and he will have a lot of support internationally now that the campaign is over. the big question is whether the iranian government will be willing to come in a serious way to the negotiating table. they have not
the prime ministers of basically from israel, egypt, the u.n. secretary general ban ki moon. french foreign minister qatari prime minister, foreign minister, and the turkish foreign minister. you can see what they're doing is tapping the countries that have the most influence. number one would have to be egypt. very, very important. also turkey. you can see the delicate balancing act by the president and secretary clinton is saying the same thing. on the one hand israel has the right to defend itself against these rocket attacks from gaza, but it also has to try to keep this to a minimum and try to bring this as they keep saying de-escalate the situation. suzanne. >> jill, senator john mccain had a very interesting suggestion about who he thought should get involved. what do we make of one of the people that he would like to put out there? >> well, let's listen to what senator mccain said. it's an interesting proposal. >> tried to find someone even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton, to go and be the negotiator. i know he would hate me for saying that, but we need a
